This week we will be focusing on the following areas in each subject:
Describe characters, settings, and major events in a story, using key details.
Write narratives in which students recount two or more appropriately sequenced events, include some details regarding what happened, use temporal words to signal event order, and provide some sense of closure.
With guidance and support from adults, focus on a topic, respond to questions and suggestions from peers, and add details to strengthen writing as needed.
Use addition and subtraction within 20 to solve word problems involving situations of adding to, taking from, putting together, taking apart, and comparing, with unknowns in all positions, e.g., by using objects, drawings, and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.
Relate counting to addition and subtraction (e.g., by counting on 2 to add 2).
Plan and conduct simple investigations.
Manipulate simple tools (for example: hand lens, pencils, rulers, thermometers, rain gauges, balances, non-standard objects for measurement) that aid observation and data collection.
Explain how decision can be made or how conflicts might be resolved in fair and just ways (majority rules)
